For those of you like myself who have been rooting for Duncan Jones' Moon, you will be happy to know that he won the award for Outstanding Debut at the British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTA). Moon was one of my favorite movies last year, one that definitely got snubbed at the Oscars this year for some reason. That movie should have been nominated for Best Picture, Director, and Actor. If you haven't seen it yet, then it's time to remedy that. I'm just happy his work on Moon was finally recognized.
Jones gave a very humble and emotional acceptance speech which I've embedded for you below.
Now here is the complete list of the award winners, which includes The Hurt Locker for Best film.
